Win a Week at Ruth's!!

Want to spend a week at Ruth's next summer, going to the beach, farmers market, enjoying downtown Grand Haven, having coffee on the deck and gathering around the table to play games with your family and friends??

 You could spend a week for just $10 if you are the lucky winner of a raffle that benefits a sweet little girl who will be celebrating her first "heart birthday" after having a heart transplant at 4 months old.  Some of you might remember me talking about miss Hannah Mae in an earlier blog post back in April, if not go back and catch up - this little one has a pretty amazing story!  In May I had the privilege of spending 24 hours with Hannah, her 2 awesome big brothers and mom and dad in Seattle.  This little girl will melt your heart in about 2 seconds and keep you smiling all day long!
Hannah's friends and family are all coming together in Grand Haven next month for a fundraiser dinner, and a week at Ruth's Retreat will be featured as the grand prize raffle!  It only seems fitting - Hannah's aunt and uncle locally manage Ruth's - keeping the lawn looking great, house cleaned and ready to welcome renters every week.  Hannah's other aunt has a booth at the local antique mall and some of my favorite finds that you see in Ruth's came from there.  Hannah's grandparents still live in the house next door to the house Grandma Ruth grew up in.  Ruth's Retreat wouldn't be what it is today without the help of these dear family friends!
So I hope you will think about purchasing a raffle ticket or two - you might win a week at Ruth's, but regardless it is a win - as all the money will be helping Hannah and the unimaginable medical bills she has.  You don't have to be present to win - so if you are interested in purchasing tickets from afar please just contact me at ruthsretreat@gmail.com or if you do find yourself in Grand Haven on September 24th you can even attend in person, click here for more info!
